For the last century, the AnchorageChamber has played key role in Anchorage's economic growth, and our centennial celebration will recognize the modernization of our economy. This historical milestone will be shared with the City of Anchorage, who will also be celebrating its one hundred year anniversary at the same time. The Anchorage Chamber's centennial celebration will be filled with a variety of events focusing on celebrating industries and businesses that have made Anchorage into the diverse and global community that it is today.
The crowning jewel of our centennial celebration will be a two day Tent City Festival on the Park Strip, reminiscent of Anchorage's humble beginnings in 1915 as a tent city. The festival's design and layout will transport attendees through the eras of economic expansion over the last century. From the roaring 1920's when the Alaska Rail Road and mining played significant roles, to the 1970's when oil and gas development set the stage for prosperity, to the growth of the telecommunications industry today, the walk through time will highlight what economic engines have powered Anchorage since 1915.
The Anchorage Chamber's Tent City Festival will be the only community wide event that will bring together more than a projected 50,000 local residents and tourists. For this marquis centennial event, we have created multiple sponsorship packages that are designed to offer your organization maximum exposure for this community- wide event. We hope you will join us in celebrating Anchorage's centennial birthday, and the Anchorage Chamber of Commerce's 100 years of Connections & Community by becoming a sponsor at any of our attractive levels.
